With the news that the Cavaliers are finally listening to trade offers for Kevin Love, multiple teams have surfaced as possible landing spots for the 5x All-Star big man.

But according to Love himself, he has a preference as to where he'd rather end up this season.

Cavaliers forward Kevin Love prefers a move to a contending team, league sources tell The Athletic. Cleveland has been open to engaging in discussions with teams, as ESPN reported on Friday. Love has three years and $90 million remaining on his contract after this season.

The most likely suitors, according to reports, are the Nuggets, Blazers, Celtics, and Heat.

Fortunately for Love, his status as a 31-year-old veteran big man makes him almost exclusively valuable to contending teams.

Behind LeBron James and Kyrie Irving, he played 3rd fiddle in their Championship pursuit, averaging close to 20 points and 10 rebounds per game. Since the departure of James, KLove has struggled to stay healthy on the court, battling a number of injuries over the past few seasons.

With his time seemingly up, nobody knows what's in store for him next. But if the Cavs honor his wishes, a trip to the Finals this June may be in store.
